lightmap issue

Hi Everyone, quick question

Does anyone know how to workaround a black patch like this?

I am not entirely sure what causes it. I thought my lightmap is ok.

Here is a pic of my lightmap for each wooden bar.

Thanks in advance!!

Are your lightmap UVs overlapping? Do you receive a message after building your lighting indicating so?

I’ve seen issues like this before and it had to do with my lightmap resolution. Try baking at higher resolutions. 128, 256, 512, 1024 and see which one gets rid of the shadows for you. Looking at it I’m guessing 256 or 512.

Also in the game view of the details tab in lighting don’t forget to change Overridden Light map res. Bottom Right of pic.
